Hi,
Is there such thing as Javascript sockets? I mean, I need it to connect to see if the username is available to an external source - if you get me.

If they do exist, could someone give me an example or point me in the correct direction please?

Thanks
NeoPuma

Not possible without ActiveX control or applet.

or by using XmlHttpRequest to connect to a local 'bridge', that will connect to the remote site, and then return the result to the client.

Ok, How would I do this? I really need to do it for my site to be honest - it makes life easier.

Thanks

Google for "socket applet" or "socket activex".

Google for AJAX.

ActiveX is Internet Explorer only.

While you're at it, Google for XUL!

Thanks all, I finally scraped up a very handy tutorial, originally wrote for mysql, but somehow using my very very basic knowledge, it now does what I want :P.

Thank-You
